Hey there! My name is Megan and I'm the sewing, pattern making girl behind Dolly Henry. This is my blog, where I share my own creative adventures and hope to meet fellow fabric enthusiasts. I also design and sell sewing patterns through my online boutique, alongside a beautiful collection of clothing and dolls. Thank you for stopping by!


Making Hazel Dolls

Hazel has been continuing her plan for world domination this week! As she whispered her secret plans in my ear, I set about creating some more little Hazel Deer so that she can be one step closer to her goal.

Three seemed like a good number to make together and my sister very kindly stepped in to help me stuff the little Hazel arms and legs while I focused on stitching Hazel's rosey cheeks and flirty lashes. 

I went for three very different but very darling looks, and after a couple of days and many hours of work, Hazel has three new sisters to join her at the Brisbane Finders Keepers market in June.

I used my Hazel Deer Doll pattern and some of the gorgeous tassel trim from the Dolly Henry shop to create these gorgeous dolls. I also have been dying to work with this fabric so I incorporated it into Fig's outfit!

Would you like a more formal introduction?

This is Bella. She has a sweet disposition and absolutely loves ice-skating! It's her favorite thing to do besides shopping for her couture wardrobe. Bella has won quite a few skating championships, and having conquered the ice-skating world, is now working on her ballet moves.

Bright, and bubbly, Fig loves old-fashioned picnics with jam sandwiches and tinned sardines. Fig reads lots and lots of Enid Blyton and is rumored to be starting her own "secret seven" society! (could this be a cover for Hazel's world domination plans??) 

Finally,  meet Piper. Piper lives in a beautiful white weatherboard cottage near the beach and makes necklaces from the shells she gathers on the sandy shoreline. Piper is well known for always having a pot of hot tea on the stove and her delicious ginger cake.

Things are going along quite well here just now, though there are a few nudie dolls that are still waiting for some attire! I had better get cracking on those because the weather has become quite chilly and I don't want them catching cold. I'm already layering up - every year I want to do Me Made May and it's rolling around again! Unfortunately, I don't have the time to commit to it (again!) this year but I will do my best to slip something in here and there if I can. I was layered up in a jumper and a dress I made out of a beautiful floral the other day, so I took a casual self-portrait in attempt to at least salute Me Made May from afar, even if I can't participate as fully as I would like!

If you would like to purchase a Hazel Doll you will be able to find them on my stall at the Brisbane Finders Keepers in June. Alternatively, I have published Hazel as a pattern on my website, with both the PDF and Paper versions available. There are kits coming soon too!
